Biography

Mark Demsteader's beautiful and powerful figurative work has developed from a fascination with both the human form and classical themes.His close observation combines with intriguing surface texture and carefully balanced composition to create unique representations of the female figure with overtones of both innocence and eroticism. Focusing on the face of his model but moving into more abstract territory with the rest of the figure, each piece explores the enigmatic nature of individuality and reflects the artist’s interest in the concept of ambiguity.

Over the last three decades Mark has brought together classical painting techniques and academic drawing in a style one critic has described as “a classicism made modern.” His celebrated work has been variously compared to that of Turner for his “elemental storminess” and to the Pre-Raphaelites for their evocative narrative voice. Alongside the underlying serenity of each piece however, there is a tension and abstraction which establishes his work as dynamic, innovative and distinctly contemporary. Mark has appeared on numerous occasions in the national press in recent times, everywhere from Tatler to the Daily Telegraph. He has painted many famous faces, and his celebrated series of portraits of Emma Watson was featured in Vogue. His list of celebrity collectors crosses cultural and national boundaries taking us from motor racing to ballet, and includes Angelina Jolie, Nicolas Cage, Erin O Connor, Mike Catt, Eddie Jordan, Grant Nicholas, Marianela Núñez, Tamara Rojo and Ineos chairman Jim Ratcliffe.
